This solo is a moderately slow waltz with a quiet joy that flows throughout the piece. A middle bridge section changes harmonically to dramatize the great gift of dominion that God has given to man. This is a lovely and meditative setting of Psalm 8.

How Excellent Is Thy Name
Music by Glenn Hardy
Words from Psalm 8

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Who has set thy glory above the heavens.

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
